I’ve been told many times I’m a passionate person. I guess that’s accurate. I have a passion for my marriage, my family, for employees to work safely and I have a passion for leaders to lead . In fact, pretty much my entire life seems to always reflect my passions. I can’t go anywhere or have a conversation with anyone without talking about my wife, my grand daughter, safety or leadership.
I want to passionately influence people!
Passionate people sustain their efforts until they make a difference. It drives them to do more, accomplish more, learn more and put up with more. One thing I often tell my coaching clients is,
“If you love what you do, you’ll do more of it, so find what it is you love”
I recently became intrigued as to why people think I am a passionate person. As I sat down and begin recalling conversations and asking questions, I found that most answers pointed to 8 reasons why I am a passionate person.
Here they are:
- I love what I do!
- I strive to remain positive
- I inspire to motivate
- I bring the sunshine
- I seek to to grow spiritually, personally and professionally
- I persevere
- I am determined
- I strive to maintain a servants heart
We have all been passionate about something. But maybe the passion has died or subsided through out the years. My purpose for this blog is not to arrogantly announce that I am a passionate person, but rather it is an attempt to show you that passion is found in what you love. Find what it is you love, cherish and hold tightly to.
John Maxwell ask these three questions to help others find their passion:
- What do you sing about?
- What do you cry about?
- What do you dream about?
